A short, shady loop around picture-perfect Mardugal Billabong.
This relaxing walk takes you to a beautiful picnic spot overlooking the water. The billabong is lined with andjimjim (water pandanus), towering silver-leaved paperbarks and shady syzygiums.
Take a fishing rod and fish from the high bank at the end of the walk, but if you get a snag say goodbye to your lure – large saltwater crocs live in this billabong so stay out of the water. They rarely show themselves but they are there – don’t go down the bank to the water’s edge!
Be Crocwise: Fishing and boating
Ensure you observe all safety signs, and be aware that whenever you are near water in the park, there is a risk of crocs!
Do not enter the water when fishing.
Never lean over the edge of a boat, out on a tree limb or enter the water to retrieve snagged lures.
When fishing from the bank fish five metres from the water’s edge.
Saltwater crocodiles can attack people in boats, the smaller the boat the greater the risk.
